Stephanie (Stephanie Hayes), a restless and vibrant actress, meets Gerard (Scott Shepherd), an NYPD counter-terrorism specialist who’s an aficionado of experimental theater (and maybe out of his mind). Flirtation ensues, ends disastrously, and forces Stephanie to the ramshackle upstate home of musician Eleanor Friedberger, yet this supposed escape is infected by violent memories of her past life. Directed by Paul Felten and Joe DeNardo, SLOW MACHINE is a miniature epic of paranoia, espionage, subterfuge, music, and performance captured on lush and invigorating 16mm.
